In the past thirty seconds, three more children were born in the United States. Of these three, only two are likely to graduate from high school. Millions of children in the U.S. face lives of lost potential without access to quality prenatal care, healthy and supportive environments, and opportunities to learn. It doesn’t have to be that way. Funders can help all children get an equal chance at a strong start.
About this toolkit:
New evidence from neuroscience, social science, high-level policy efforts, and growing concern among business, military, and other civic leaders has generated vast amounts of information and potentially useful guidance. We developed this web-based “toolkit” to help funders cut through the noise. You’ll find key facts, strategies for investment, high impact opportunities, and partners that any funder interested in early childhood should know.
As always, we hope this guidance helps donors move from good intentions to high impact.
